Amazing Backstroke

What a day! We had short staff today and switched up the coaching coverage. I got to work with the Novice. We invented a new drill...kick on your back and slap your belly every six kicks. The drill enforces great body position with hitting yourself in the stomach. The action causes the core of the body to flex and tightens the body line.

We also performed the Kung Fu Panda backstroke drill. The swimmers use their amazing Kung Fu skills to perform a windmill karate chop attack on the water. The fast acting hands allows swimmers to maintain speed and body position. In short the swimmers all had outstanding backstroke. Way to go Novice!!!!
